""If it comes down to that Senate bill or nothing, I think we are going to end with nothing because I don't hear a lot of support on our side for that bill,” said Rep. Stephen Lynch (D-Mass.) "The problem is this we are spending almost a trillion dollars and folks are telling me I should vote yes and we will fix it later. You wouldn't buy a car for a trillion dollars and say yeah, it doesn't run but we will fix it later."

"Rep. Brad Ellsworth (D-Ind.) said, "I don't put as much stock into what happens in Massachusetts... I cannot imagine, from one person, one member from Indiana, that this House would accept the Senate bill as is.""
Politico - but these are direct quotes from house reps, not commentary.
Now what I find funny is that it was just last week this bill was something we supposedly couldn't afford not to pass. It was the best thing since sliced bread. They lose one vote and suddenly they can't back it anymore. Amazing how your perspective changes when you suddenly have to let everyone have a voice instead of just 30%.
